Madness in Europe Results in Historic Bar Stools in the UK

No amount of turning off the news to watch Bargain Hunt could prevent you from hearing about two of the biggest fiascos of recent times; 1) The News Corp Madness and 2) How debt-ridden Europe sees billions wiped off markets. If you were one of the few who thought the financial woes of the recent past were behind us, here's your wakeup call. The song says things can only get better but I'm afraid, in this case at least, the facts suggest otherwise. The Euro has crashed in the last week or so and for many EU countries, the effects will be devastating. In just one week alone, Greece has been forced to admit it's nowhere near coping with its £260bn of debt. Did anyone miss that? £260 BILLION, if you did. The knock-on effect is that other countries in the Eurozone are feeling the pinch too, as Greece starts a contagious bout of defaulting on payments. Although this might seem like a lot of really bad news, there is a thin veil of good fortune beneath it all too, and that is that European Manufacturers are benefitting from higher demand on exports and one particular product experiencing strong growth is the humble kitchen bar stool..

Bar Stools Across the UK Fall In Price
Ok, so it's not the best piece of news you'll ever hear but it's a refreshing bit of good news amidst the backdrop of rising food, fuel and living costs. With the crash of the Euro, exports from countries like Italy, Greece and Germany have seen an increase in volume. European bar stools are now on par with far east prices in terms of their import cost making them far more appealing than recent years. What this means for you is that you can now pick up a bar stool from a UK retailer approximately 15% cheaper than what you could have done a year ago. Bar stools that, a year ago, would have cost you £35 can now be bought for £29.

The biggest winners from the Eurocrash are the more prestigious, stylish bar stools that used to sell for over £200. 15% price reductions mean you can bag yourself a top quality Italian leather stool for around £169! These aren't just imitations either. Combined with the growing pressure most homeowners are under these days to stay put and improve their homes, rather than move out of them, we're experiencing a period of excellent opportunities that are allowing even the most modest family home the chance to own some really high quality kitchen furniture.

But the really exciting news for style maestros the country over is that because of the internet, an even more powerful situation is beginning to unfold. I probably don't need to tell you that online sales grew last year to the tune of 25% (or £408bn) and one of the real stories of this growth is the rising popularity for online retailers to offer discount codes and vouchers to customers that give them money off. Some online stores are so generous that their voucher codes are worth 10% off the online price! 10%! What this means is that as well as bar stools being cheaper at the manufacturing plant, they're also made even more cheap by the fiercely competed online marketplace where you can get discounts of a further 10% by using the right promotion. Thrown all together, the average user can save 25% in 2011 on bar stools compared to what he would have paid a year ago.
